I'm Ginny and I- know what I- want!

I'm getting married in a couple of months and will be moving out of my family's house and bringing my two cats with me. Today they had their annual checkups and I decided to microchip them because I've been meaning to for a few years.

I'm going to mail in the registration forms under my maiden name at my present address, but after July it'll be out of date. So, all I have to do is just update my info at avidid.com right? Wrong, apparently. The website is barely a website; there's hardly anything there and they don't have what I need! I found another AVID site with forms for owner/address changes, but it was for UK residents only.

So... should I:

A. Call AVID right now

B. Call AVID after the wedding/move

C. Wait until after we move and ask the new vet

...or did I miss something?

I kept the original forms from my first registration and mailed them in when I moved. I recommend you call Avid right away and ask them to mail you the forms. Or maybe they will accept the info over the phone (with a credit card.) Either way, call now and get the ball rolling.
